As an organization dedicated to raising funds for the health and social services sector, we collect, use and disclose information daily to provide our services in soliciting contributions of various kinds, participating in events, requesting assistance and providing information. Respecting privacy is essential to Préma-Québec, so we conform to the highest ethical standards when handling all information, especially personal information.
Who are we and what do we do?
Préma-Québec is the only organization in the province that helps parents of premature children. Every year, 8% of births occur prematurely. Founded in 2003 by parents of premature babies, the association is supported by doctors, nurses and other neonatal care professionals.
Préma-Québec works regularly with six neonatal units in Quebec. It organizes annual training sessions for healthcare professionals and several activities designed to raise public awareness of prematurity.
Mission: Préma-Québec's mission is to improve the quality of life of premature infants by offering psychological and financial support to their parents.
Vision: Listening to the needs of parents and offering appropriate services are at the heart of Préma-Québec's concerns. The entire team works to make Préma-Québec and the cause of prematurity better known worldwide and to share a message of hope with all who live with this reality against their will.
Values: Humanity, kindness, support, openness

Where do we retain personal information and transfers outside Quebec?
As part of our commitment to confidentiality, we would like to inform you where and how your data is stored.
The personal information we collect is stored locally on a secure server on our premises. We have implemented robust physical and electronic security measures to protect this data from unauthorized access, modification, disclosure or destruction. The server is maintained in a controlled environment with restricted access.
Cloud storage in Quebec
In addition to local storage, we also use a SharePoint cloud storage located in Quebec to store specific data. Sharepoint is a service provided by Microsoft and complies with international security standards. Data stored in the cloud is encrypted and protected by additional security measures. The fact that this data is stored in Quebec ensures compliance with local privacy laws.
The combined use of local and cloud storage enables us to maintain both redundancy and accessibility of your data while ensuring it is kept safe and secure.

We have taken steps to ensure that the only employees with access to your data are those who need to know it or whose duties reasonably require them to know it.
However, no method of transmission over the Internet, nor any means of electronic storage, is 100% secure. We, therefore, cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit or provide to us, and you do so at your own risk. Nor can we guarantee that such information will not be accessed, obtained, disclosed, modified or destroyed due to a breach of our physical, technical or administrative safeguards. If you believe your personal information has been compromised, please contact us as indicated in the "How to contact us" section.
